Bridal Lingerie Parties
I asked my friends on Facebook to help me word something on the invitations I’m sending out for a lingerie bridal shower that I’m co-hosting. I mentioned that I wanted it to be phrased in a “classy” way and one friend responded by saying that she’d never heard of a “classy” lingerie party.
I just love the idea of my sweet friend starting her marriage with a few tasteful, beautiful bedroom wardrobe pieces. It’s such a romantic season of life and so many new brides can’t afford fine lingerie. I’d hate to think that lingerie parties have fallen out of fashion because they’ve gotten a reputation for being raunchy because they certainly don’t have to be.
Anyway, I’m planning a classy lingerie shower and am having a ball. I can’t wait to share pictures with you!
“Somewhere in West Tennessee, not far from Graceland, nine women — or “The 9 Nanas,” as they prefer to be called — gather in the darkness of night. At 4am they begin their daily routine — a ritual that no one, not even their husbands, knew about for 30 years. They have one mission and one mission only: to create happiness. And it all begins with baked goods…”
Oh my heart. This is one of the most heartwarming stories I’ve ever read. Grab your tissues before you read, sweet peas!
Charlie loves this. I love this. The angels and saints in Heaven love this. God, too, probably, but I don’t suppose I should speak for Him, I guess.
In all seriousness, though – if you have a little one you need one of these. Every time a baby feeds himself an angel gets his wings, after all, and we wouldn’t want to be responsible for a wingless angel, now would we?
Enjoy your 30 seconds of newfound freedom, Mamas!
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’m all about doing “big love and infinitesimally small goals” these days which makes Small Steps for Catholic Moms the perfect book for me. I’m just so happy that it’s back in print.
Each new day offers a short quote from a saint, a prayer composed by the two authors, and a small call to action. Honestly, there are some days when I never make it all the way to the call to action, but a day doesn’t pass when this book doesn’t turn my thoughts to heavenly things and infuse me with peace. Thank you, Danielle and Elizabeth! Your book is such a gift.
I have spent the last twenty or so years searching for the ideal chocolate almond. (It hasn’t been easy but someone had to do it.) Today I’m tickled pink to announce that I have finally found perfection in chocolate almond form and am calling off the search. I can’t even tell you how delicious these are. If you are a lover of chocolate almonds, get thee to Trader Joe’s! Stat.
